  • Whitehall Inn Fruit Fritters from Annapolis MD (I didn't always life in New Mexico)
    When I lived in the Chesapeake Bay Region of Maryland we used to drive for hours to the Whitehall restaurant that always served these fruit fritters in place of the usual bread at the beginning of the meal. They were absolutely delicious. They were served in a cast iron skillet and were the highlight of any meal there. The restaurant is no longer there but I was able to find their recipe in a cook book I found at a garage sale and have been using ever since. Especially good for holidays or with roast beef or just about anything you can think of.

    FRUIT FRITTERS
    2 cups flour
    1 tbsn. baking powder
    2 1/3 tsnp. sugar
    1 tsnp. salt
    1 egg
    1/2 cup milk
    2 cups fruit*
    powdered sugar
    vegetable oil for frying

    Pour oil into heavy skillet or pan to depth of 1 1/2 inches. Heat over medium heat to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, blend dry ingredients in a bowl. Stir in egg, milk and fruit. Mix by hand until batter is smooth and thick (will be fairly stiff). Drop batter by spoonfuls into hot oil and fry until evely browned. Remove with slotted spoon to drain on paper towels. Dust lightly with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
    *any fruit with strong flavor is good. Particularly blackberries, raspberries, pineapple, or apples. DH favorite is apples with raisins and a tspn. of cinnamon.

    Are these anything at all like Fried Apple Pies?

    Sort of, kind of, but not really. They are small puffy pillows of dough fried with fruit (and cinnamon if desired throughout). More like a sweet fruity light hush puppie from the South.

    I was sorry to see Whitehall disappear. Thanks for the recipe. It's been vacant at least 15 years now. They used to have wonderful crab imperial, th fritters of course, and great hush puppies. They sold it to another family who promptly ran the restaurant into the ground. Sad to see the derelict building where I had so many fond memories.
